Project Description

What are you most proud of? Learning how to do colorwork. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a gauge swatch. I was too lazy to do that and made a slightly shrunken sweater. See my additional thoughts here: http://idreamofhandmades.wordpress.com/2012/12/31/maren/

Q&A with idreamhandmades

Winster asked:
Beautiful! I like that you made yours to fit closer to the body--very flattering.
idreamhandmades answered:
Thank you so much! The fit was purely unintentional, but I like things to fit a little closer too. :)
warbler01 asked:
It is very nice! I like your color combinations.
idreamhandmades answered:
Thank you! :)
qwiltbug asked:
I agree that the fit is great. I also love the way you put the buttons all the way down the front. It looks wonderful with jeans as well as the skirt. Super job !
idreamhandmades answered:
Thank you so much! I see you're from Gainesville - I went to UF for undergrad. Go Gators! ;)
@threegreenbananas asked:
I wouldn't have thought "shrunken" if you hadn't mentioned it. The fit is retro and stylish on you, and quite flattering. Well done!
idreamhandmades answered:
Thank you so much! :)
Aunt Lili asked:
Oh that's cool! I like it as a three-quarter sleeve.
idreamhandmades answered:
I'm beginning to also. :)
